Open Space Overview

Bernalillo County is celebrating 20 years! A referendum was passed in 1998 to provide 0.5 mill levy funds for the acquisition of Open Space lands. Shortly afterwards, Bernalillo County purchased the first Open Space properties in 1999: Ojito de San Antonio, Durand, Pajarito, and Sabino Canyon. Numerous properties followed including the Gutierrez-Hubbell House in 2000. Bernalillo County launched the Open Space program ten years after the initial mill levy tax by providing resourced-based opportunities and environmental education opportunities to the public. The program continues to blossom and the County continues to protect important lands through community support and funding from the approved 2014 mill levy tax. This year, BernCo Open Space staff and partners are offering more public events than ever. Take advantage of these free events for all ages where you will have the opportunity to further explore and learn about public lands. Also, look for special memorabilia items only available this year at the public events.

Vision Statement

Bernalillo County Open Space strives to be a dynamic network of properties with important natural or cultural resources managed to benefit people, plants and wildlife by protecting and enhancing viewsheds, water resources, wildlife habitat, cultural/historic sites, and prime agricultural land; and providing resource-based recreation and environmental education.
